NORTH KOREA: ‘ SLAMS SANCTIONS AS HOSTILE TOWARD DPRK IN STATEMENT ‘

#AceWorldNews – NORTH KOREA:Jan.04: North Korea has slammed as hostile fresh US sanctions against Pyongyang and has denied any involvement in a cyber-attack on Sony. The persistent and unilateral action taken by the White House to slap ‘sanctions’ against the DPRK [North Korea] patently proves that it is still not away from inveterate repugnancy and hostility toward the DPRK,” Reuters cites the North Korean Foreign Ministry as saying Sunday in a statement, reported by KCNA news agency.

US President Barack Obama signed an executive order Friday authorizing the imposition of new sanctions against three North Korean businesses and 10 individuals in the wake of the recent Sony hack the White House blames on Pyongyang.
